If you’re thinking about redesigning your kitchen in 2015, there’s no doubt you’ve been looking at the various stone materials that you can implement onto your kitchen countertops. Whether you’ve been looking at granite, soapstone, quartz, or marble, you’ve probably read pros and cons on each material. Maybe you’ve even consulted with a professional on the matter.
Here, I’ll tell you some reasons why you might want to choose marble for your new kitchen countertop. Aside from its overall attractiveness, which is reason No. 1 why marble is chosen to add appeal to the kitchen, there are many reasons why you should take advantage of marble countertops for your Wilmington, DE home.
Color Options: Marble is a natural stone, and miners find marble in all areas of the world. The color and shade of the stone is relevant to where it has been mined. Marble is made of calcium carbonate, which typically leads to light or cream colored fabrication, but could be a darker colored onyx. Because of its variety, you’ll be hard-pressed to find another home with the exact color of marble that you have in your kitchen.
Designs: No matter the color—a beautiful creamy Crema Marfil or a dark, rich, brown marble called Dark Emperador or a classic Italian Carrara marble with beautiful veins—the softness of marble, mixed with its workability provides an endless opportunity for designs. The material cuts easier, and professionals can fabricate the stone to manufacture fancy edges and styles to the surface.
